Inductive reasoning is something we do every day. Inductive reasoning or inductive logic creates a causal link between a premise and a hypothesis. With inductive reasoning you draw a general conclusion from a set of observations. It can be thought of as bottom-up reasoning as you create an answer from a set of observations. For example, “My bus is always late, therefore all buses must be late”. You could say that is very poor inductive reasoning, but that’s the point. Improving your inductive reasoning is about recognising and improving the way we collect, assess information and then draw conclusions from that.
Deductive reasoning takes a more logical approach to decision-making, it’s about making logical, sound conclusions. The conclusion, the decision, is seen to be the only obvious answer as a self-evident truth. It uses several facts and creates the logical conclusion from that.
A syllogism, in logic, is valid deductive reasoning having at least two premises and a conclusion.
